Rachel Ruto demonstrates how to be a good wife to President Ruto

First Lady Rachel Ruto has called upon women to be good wives by staying beside their men.

Quoting the popular Proverbs 18:22 which reads, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the LORD,” the first lady said that every woman should strive to support their husband and believe in their abilities.

Speaking after meeting the National Assembly Lady Spouses Association which is a team of women, spouses to serving Members of Parliament, mama Rachel encouraged the women to be engaged in their husband’s leadership roles.

“Behind the men who have given their lives in the service of the people and country are a breed of noble women, oftentimes unrecognized, who keep pushing them to deliver nothing but the best,” said Rachel.

“Today, at Statehouse, Nairobi, I met the Board members and shared with them my own experiences as a spouse to a seasoned political leader, now the President.

I challenge them to move from the rear and actively be involved in their spouses’ lives and leadership roles,” said Rachel.

She also called upon them to stay beside their men and be a pillar upon which the legacies of their husbands and families are built.

The first lady also revealed plans to work with the NALSA-K in matters of climate change.

“I assured them that the Office of the First Lady will work closely with NALSA-K, especially in the area of Climate Action,” added Mama Rachel.

This comes just a few hours after she hosted members of the Spouses of Heads of Missions (SHOM), an establishment that brings together spouses of Ambassadors and Diplomatic Corps residing in Kenya, for a luncheon.

During the luncheon at Statehouse, they discussed ways of using God-given positions to influence growth and encourage and support other women to take up active roles in nation-building.

“SHOM has continued to organize a series of charity events to raise funds that support underprivileged Kenyans and manage social events that foster friendships and encourage intercultural exchanges. I assured them of my support as we all hold hands to better the lives of our citizens,” said Rachel.
